    haha, well here's hoping the 290x lightning shines like the 7970 one did.

    Only if the price is right. If it's over £500, not so much.

    Yeah, I automatically assumed it would be 290x only, if its in nonx then ~ 400€ max for sure and that is kinda acceptable. :)


    Like that Sappphire 290nonx trix, it OC's great and stays cool for what ~ 380€ atm.

    Edit: ah they raised prices a bit, now its min 396€.

    the 780 lightning isn't a good OCer, doesn't deserve the name you could argue.
